Nepali Ayurvedic Massage

  You are able to learn this technique either via our online video (with accompanying e-book) or in-person at workshops at official host locations. Participants will be able to perform the massage modality in its entirety, and will also learn the underlying aspects of the technique.

  • Traditional Nepali Ayurvedic massage uses strokes, circular movements (with knuckles, fingertips, and palms), and intentional holds and pauses at various points within the lower half of the human body, in an intentional and unique manner. It is relaxing in nature while at the same time often providing some form of energetic release (similar to acupressure points).

  • The sequence of Nepali Ayurvedic massage begins with the feet and moves upwards, with the left foot as the initial point of contact for female clients (feminine energy) and the right foot as the initial point of contact for male clients (masculine energy).
  • One major aspect of Nepali Ayurvedic Massage is the intentional holds and pauses at various points along the body. These holds and points of pressure can be applied via pinching, thumb pressure, and finger tips.

  The movements and strokes of this massage, partnered with the sequence, rhythm, and intention, create a massage technique that is truly unique.
